As I currently deal my other challenge of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), this winter depression feels like it’s my annual kryptonite that robs me of my superhero powers, energy and focus during these long cold months. That’s why I get charged up when I see movies that feature superheroes or characters that demonstrate amazing courage and confidence in facing their challenges.
And when I see film characters that are physically small but able to face and challenge larger opponents it really feels inspiring! They become mirrors and cinematic role models for me to face my own obstacles no matter how immense and hopeless they seem!

Within the backdrop of thrilling SCI FI fantasy visuals, I was inspired by Alita to continue unravelling my own built in memories of my own dormant confidence, gifts and strengths. I’m allowing her character be my latest cinematic role model for perseverance, resilience, passion and indestructible optimism. And also to feel a sense of fun along the way!
